Non Tweets Under the Fedora 12-21-18: History, Tutu, War on Men, Syria and the Economy

Dur­ing my lunch breaks I’ve been read­ing the 2nd vol­ume in Albert Bush­nell Hart’s Amer­i­can His­tory Told by Con­tem­plates and it’s amaz­ing to see the con­trast between what I am read­ing there and what I see in the news and on the net. The most amaz­ing thing is it only took two gen­er­a­tions for this to happen.


Speak­ing of things that changes in a gen­er­a­tion or two at PJ Media Bruce Bawler notices a miss­ing voice in the debate about seiz­ing white owned farms in South Africa

On Decem­ber 9, he attended a din­ner com­mem­o­rat­ing the twen­ti­eth anniver­sary of the final report of the Truth and Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Com­mis­sion, which he headed up, and which, in the imme­di­ate wake of apartheid, brought to light long­stand­ing human-​rights abuses, gave per­pe­tra­tors an oppor­tu­nity to express remorse, and pro­vided vic­tims with repa­ra­tion and reha­bil­i­ta­tion. The very day after the com­mem­o­ra­tive din­ner came the news that a min­istry based in Jack­sonville, Florida, had teamed up with Tutu “in an effort to fight world hunger.”

So he’s been a busy fel­low. But what has he said or done about the war on white farm­ers? I’ve googled away, and scoured Lexis, and found noth­ing. Not a word.

Well given the exam­ple of Zim­babwe the Bish­ops silence on the tar­get­ing of White Farm­ers he’ll have plenty of hunger to fight in South Africa soon.


Wasn’t it also two gen­er­a­tions ago when the the left decided that the nuclear fam­ily was a bad idea and get­ting it on with any­one when­ever it feels right was not only bet­ter but would free women and men. Stacy McCain reports on how that’s going.

“I am wear­ing a body cam from now on. I also am tak­ing a vow of silence. Any time a woman is near, I am not say­ing a word. Thanks, fem­i­nism.”
Is this … extreme? Well, it’s sar­cas­tic hyper­bole, I’m sure, but it expresses an entirely ratio­nal male reac­tion to fem­i­nism, a move­ment that is pred­i­cated on, and which seeks to encour­age all women to embrace, a lim­it­less hos­til­ity toward men. (Yes, all men.)

I keep meet­ing women who are alone and men who live with women with­out mar­ring them. The old “patri­archy” tended to civ­i­lize men and pro­tect women, it only took two gen­er­a­tions for both to be tossed away.


Of course while some things take gen­er­a­tions to take place some things hap­pen much quicker, take Syria for exam­ple. Since the 80 the Democ­rats took the side of Rus­sia in almost every­thing and since the 60’s they’ve been against troops going over­seas, but it only took the elec­tion of Don­ald Trump for the to decide that the removal of US troops from the coun­try is the worst thing to hap­pen since forever.

The only two con­sis­tent on it are Lind­sey Gra­ham who is an inter­ven­tion­ist and Trump who by nature is not. For myself I think we’re bet­ter off stay­ing than leav­ing as it’s a lot harder to go back if you need to then it is to leave and once we go there’s always the chance of ISIS reforming.


Finally it’s Christ­mas and I’ve grabbed every sin­gle over­time hour i’ve been able to get my hands on. Not only because as I’ve said it’s been a lean year both in traf­fic and sub­scribers but because I know that we’re under three weeks from a Demo­c­rat Con­gress and while It’s taken two years for Don­ald Trump to build up an econ­omy , to para­phrase Sam Ray­burn any old Jack­ass can knock it down and we’ve got a flock of them on the way.

Of course if the Democ­rats were still the party of Ray­burn, I wouldn’t be so wor­ried but then again if the Democ­rats were still the party of Ray­burn I might still be one.

During my lunch breaks I’ve been reading the 2nd volume in Albert Bushnell Hart’s American History Told by Contemplates and it’s amazing to see the contrast between what I am reading there and what I see in the news and on the net.  The most amazing thing is it only took two generations for this to happen.


Speaking of things that changes in a generation or two at PJ Media Bruce Bawler notices a missing voice in the debate about seizing white owned farms in South Africa


On December 9, he attended a dinner commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which he headed up, and which, in the immediate wake of apartheid, brought to light longstanding human-rights abuses, gave perpetrators an opportunity to express remorse, and provided victims with reparation and rehabilitation. The very day after the commemorative dinner came the news that a ministry based in Jacksonville, Florida, had teamed up with Tutu “in an effort to fight world hunger.”


So he’s been a busy fellow. But what has he said or done about the war on white farmers? I’ve googled away, and scoured Lexis, and found nothing. Not a word. 

Well given the example of Zimbabwe the Bishops silence on the targeting of White Farmers he’ll have plenty of hunger to fight in South Africa soon.  


Wasn’t it also two generations ago when the the left decided that the nuclear family was a bad idea and getting it on with anyone whenever it feels right was not only better but would free women and men.  Stacy McCain reports on how that’s going.


“I am wearing a body cam from now on. I also am taking a vow of silence. Any time a woman is near, I am not saying a word. Thanks, feminism.”
Is this . . . extreme? Well, it’s sarcastic hyperbole, I’m sure, but it expresses an entirely rational male reaction to feminism, a movement that is predicated on, and which seeks to encourage all women to embrace, a limitless hostility toward men. (Yes, all men.)

I keep meeting women who are alone and men who live with women without marring them.  The old “patriarchy” tended to civilize men and protect women, it only took two generations for both to be tossed away.


Of course while some things take generations to take place some things happen much quicker, take Syria for example. Since the 80 the Democrats took the side of Russia in almost everything and since the 60’s they’ve been against troops going overseas, but it only took the election of Donald Trump for the to decide that the removal of US troops from the country is the worst thing to happen since forever.

The only two consistent on it are Lindsey Graham who is an interventionist and Trump who by nature is not. For myself I think we’re better off staying than leaving as it’s a lot harder to go back if you need to then it is to leave and once we go there’s always the chance of ISIS reforming.


Finally it’s Christmas and I’ve grabbed every single overtime hour i’ve been able to get my hands on. Not only because as I’ve said it’s been a lean year both in traffic and subscribers but because I know that we’re under three weeks from a Democrat Congress and while It’s taken two years for Donald Trump to build up an economy , to paraphrase Sam Rayburn any old Jackass can knock it down and we’ve got a flock of them on the way.

Of course if the Democrats were still the party of Rayburn, I wouldn’t be so worried but then again if the Democrats were still the party of Rayburn I might still be one.
